Hello from Ohio


Recommended Posts

Hello AutoShopOwner forum members,


My name is Mario and I am starting a auto repair business in Massillon Ohio. I am currently in the process of purchasing a property that needs to be rehabbed and tooled. This is my first business I have tried to run. I actually finished college with a double major in Education - Secondary Social Studies & History. The job market is not there for teaching at the moment. I have always loved interacting with people, working on cars, and overcoming a challenge. I have been lurking the forums for a few months now reading threads trying to learn as much as I can. I hope I am able to contribute heavily to the forums here in the near future!

      Having been a shop owner for 41 years, I have lived through many economic swings, both good and bad.  I can tell you that increases in prices, from gas to food to new car prices, can prove to be a good thing for auto repair shops. 
      People tend to tighten their belts during tough economic times, but also understand that they need their cars in the best shape they can be to save on fuel and save on costly breakdowns. 
      How can you help your customers save on fuel costs and focus on preventive maintenance?

      With so many different models on the roads these days and the challenges of obtaining all the necessary training, tools, and technical information, should auto repair shops consider narrowing their focus on fewer makes and models?  
      Is "All Makes, All Models" really achievable today?

      In a recent Wall Street Journal article, automakers are asking the European Union to hold off on their 2035 plan to ban the sale of gasoline-powered vehicles. Automakers state that the disruption would be too great for auto supply companies and that the charging infrastructure will not be ready in time for the ban. In addition, the shift would cause big job losses.  
      How do you feel about EVs?
